Ascend was a collaborative project between Greg Anderson (Sunn O)))) and Gentry Densley (Eagle Twin).

HistoryEdit

ASCEND began between Gentry Densley (Iceburn, Eagle Twin) and Greg Anderson (sunn 0))), Goatsnake, Engine Kid) with recording sessions in 2006 and 2007. Both have been making music that has crossed paths several times in the last 19 years, the most notable being during the 90s when Andersons’ band Engine Kid toured with and shared a split album with Densleys’ band Iceburn. During that time both were heavily experimenting with the fusion of jazz (Mahavishnu Orchestra, Miles Davis, John Coltrane) and the dark behemoth tones of influences such as The Melvins, Gore, Slint, Caspar Brotzman.

Ascend is perceived as a return to those influences while adding to their sound their recent drone aesthetic. With sessions done in Los Angeles, Salt Lake City and Seattle the band would release their only studio album. Ample Fire Within was released on Southern Lord Records on 27 May 2008 to positive reviews. On a tour between Sunn O))) and Eagle Twin in 2009 Greg Anderson and Steve Moore would occasionally join Eagle Twin on stage to perform an "Ascend" set.
